Description of Name Reactions and Reagents in Organic Synthesis

It has been a long haul. The start of this revision came almost the same way that the original edition started. For the first edition it was Mike Ellerd, then an undergraduate at Montana State, who organized my crude Name Reaction handouts so well that others encouraged the conversion into a book. 

At Colby College, Frank Favaloro did the same thing, making “study sheets” and adding to the list of Name Reactions. He graduated in 1996 and I started reformatting and expanding. With encouragement from Darla Henderson, this became a project. By then Frank had finished graduate school and was enthusiastic about participating. I had also retired from formal teaching and found much more time for creative work. 

The three of us started to work in earnest! This edition differs substantially from the fmt by the inclusion of many modem Name Reactions instead of sticking exclusively with the old, tried and true. There are many reactions not covered; indeed, we ultimately eliminated those that had little contemporary use. We generally applied a “rule of thumb” that a newer name had to be cited by multiple authors. 

Therefore there are some relatively new protocols that have not stood the test of time; however, the breadth of recent use warranted inclusion. As for reagents, we have focused on both Name Reagents and those whose acronyms are often used in place of the actual name. We have noted the common use of these forms in current literature.
